The season for giving is upon us, and all we ask of you, dear readers, is that you put a new book in Wes's hands. He's oh so desperate for a new read, so choose wisely. We're relying on you to infringe upon his holiday vacation by making him feel obligated to work during his time off. Just be sure to make your selection by 11:59 p.m. on Dec. 6.
Wren Caswell is average. Ranked in the middle of her class at Sacred Heart, she’s not popular, but not a social misfit. Wren is the quiet, “good” girl who's always done what she's supposed to—only now in her junior year, this passive strategy is backfiring. She wants to change, but doesn’t know how. Grayson Barrett was the king of St. Gabe’s. Star of the lacrosse team, top of his class, on a fast track to a brilliant future—until he was expelled for being a “term paper pimp.” Now Gray is in a downward spiral and needs to change, but doesn’t know how. One fateful night their paths cross when Wren, working at her family’s Arthurian-themed catering hall, performs the Heimlich on Gray as he chokes on a cocktail weenie, saving his life literally and figuratively. What follows is the complicated, awkward, hilarious, and tender tale of two teens shedding their pasts, figuring out who they are—and falling in love.
Why can't I wait? Awkward, hilarious, social misfit falls for popular kid. I mean, it's all right there in the title.
